I'm a former iPhone user. I used iPhone for the past 3 years and I was happy with it. I checked the new iPhone 4s and iPhone 5 and I wasn't impressed... it look all alike the prior versions and just a "faster" phone. I have a tablet with Android 4.x for the last couple of months and I'm not impressed either, it's a nice toy but will not entirely suited for work and will never replace my or be useful enough to compete against a small netbook. Prior to the iPhone I had a Windows 6 phone, Treo 680, Treo 600 and others no-smart phone.

I ordered this phone a couple weeks ago, it is one of the cheapest phone with very decent hardware specs. The only downside is the storage capacity but since I don't store music or videos on my phone, it is more than enough for me.

So far, is the BEST phone I ever had, I'm impressed everyday about the integration of my contacts and how easy it is to do everything. From the regular contact page of the phone, it integrates with all your emails accounts information (MSN, Gmail and Outlook), your facebook profiles including pictures and activities and your LinkedIn profiles. You cannot find a better way to have everything under a single contact page.
Since this phone connect to the 4G network, it is fast and accurate. I'm just waiting for the 7.8 Windows Phone update to make it complete. I couldn't be happier with my phone. I am definitively going to recommend Windows Phone to anybody and any of future phones will be based on Windows.

It has 2 cameras, front camera is low quality but look decent when doing facetime. The rear camera is 5MP but very good quality. My Girlfriend has a 8MP camera on her cell and my pictures look better than hers....

6 stars out of 5...

NOTE: In case you need more storage, look for the Samsung Focus S, it has 16GB and 8MP camera instead of 5MP....

This is my first smart phone and since I always rely on the reviews on this site from others, I have to say how much I love this phone. Since it was my first smart phone, I didn't want to spend a fortune and this one filled that bill. I also felt that since it was a windows operating system, it might be a good thing to try this since I'm familiar with windows. It's very easy to use and really has a lot going for it.

My priorities were: first, the easy ability to make phone calls. This one definitely does that and the bluetooth feature was extremely easy to pair with GM. Second priority for me was music. This phone comes with a built in FM radio and a stereo headset was included. Since I was warned that many of the music streaming options are data hogs using the FM radio at the gym works for me and does not eat up my data plan. Third priority was e-mail while we're on vacation and with a little help from my internet service provider, this was also extremely easy to set up and use. The calendar feature is wonderful; can't say enough good things about it. So far I've also been pleased with the battery life.

I have only had the phone for 2 weeks and have been making it a priority to learn something new about it every day. So far I have not really used the camera. That will be on next week's agenda so maybe I'll check back in and let you know how that's going. But I would definitely recommend this phone.

This is my first windows phone, I am so excited to grab the features. Style, pricing, handy, fast responsive processors, are the pros.

I am happy with the purchase. For the price i believe I got a very good phone. Samsung hardware is good & Windows Phone is great, much better than the android phones that you would get at a similar price.

This obviously isn't in the same class as something like the iPhone or the Galaxy III, but it's still a great phone. My main issue is the lack of separated volume control and no memory card slot.

I was ready to upgrade to a smart phone, I researched and reviewed all of my options. I decided for my needs I wanted a Windows phone. I also had great luck with my previous Samsung phone. I also wanted a pocket size. I needed to stick with my familys carrier, so The Samsung Focus 2 fit perfectly. A very stylish looking phone. Easy to set up and get going. I only need a few apps so I am not worried about 8g of memory. I am happy with the Mango 7.5 but looking forward to the 7.8 update. When I feed my horses I carry my phone, well now I can listen to the FM radio ( includes earphones). I still have a few more things to learn about the phone such as multi-tasking, taking photos, and voice commands. I have not come across anything I dislike. This is a easy, fast, and fun phone do not hesitate.

First off, the phone was purchased for my mother (in her 60's). It's her first smartphone and she enjoys it. Everything works great on the T-Mobile network, except for MMS. Apparently it isn't a TRULY unlocked phone. I think the shipper should make that very clear in the details. After a week of talking with customer service on the phone, the T-Mobile store said that the MMS setting is still locked by AT&T.

The phone is great and easy to use, however it gets a 3 because the seller didn't advertise that properly (the seller gets a 1). Now, I have to talk to AT&T to see if they're willing to completely unlock it.
